Thanks for your guy's replies
Yeah im sure shaw does not support the firewire port directly. However, it is interesting that in the manuals for the 3416, it mentions multiple times how the firewire port can be used to obtain video and audio instead of hdmi / component and audio solutions.
I've also done a bit of googling as well, and have noticed other people with shaw, in vancouver (where i'm located) that are able to use the firewire on the 3416
very stumped, and contradictory to shaw's response.
